Winter Vs. Summer

Winter Vs. Summer

As you probably know I do enjoy going back for another look at different places. It was only in December of last year that I showed you a Different Seasons diptych from the Hammar estate. Back then it was a combination of an unusual winter photo and a misty autumn shot. This time around it is real winter vs. early summer. I shot the snow photo just a few days ago and the green side in May of 2009. Probably a good thing that it wasn't a flag day, that would have made it rather tricky to line up the two photos.

MARVELOUS!!! I am so very impressed by your seasons set. Love the dramatic difference of this one.
Around here, it would be sunny with flowers, sunny without flowers... Maybe I could try a night|day set. Hmmmm.

This is really terrific - you do an amazing job of this. And imagine, 2 1/2 yrs. difference from one side to the other and you can't tell at all -

Except I guess they did paint.

An interesting take on the seasons.

I see there has been a fresh coat of paint between the years.

Excellent, I am sure you would have got even the flag right...

Deb said...

Great set of pictures, makes me realise how much I miss seeing the colour green in winter.

Lowell said...

Excellent composite, as usual. But as Grace noted, it appears the house was painted inbetween photos.

Virginia said...

How clever you are. In could never figure this out but I love seeing your seasons there.

This would be a great series for an Australian to try (maybe they do)...would turn our Northern Hemisphere notions upside down. :)

nice job, Steffe

I remember talking to Charlotte about the cost of keeping this place in good condition. Charlotte lives at Hammar, and it was one of her ancestors that built the estate 200 years ago. I am yet to have a look inside, but I know that there is one room that hasn't been changed for a few eons.

Give it a go Tash.
